Step 5 

• Unfold the last fold. 

• You may need to use your finger to help with the "squash" fold. (Picture #2) 

• Repeat on both sides. 

• Fold back the point. You will want to fold down so it's even with the paper. (Picture #3) 

Step 6 

• Open up the unit. 

• Fold in the 2 points on the left and right. 

• Refold the unit.

Step 7 

• Fold along the crease. 

• You will need a glue gun. I've used sticky dots, but they don't hold over time. 

• Put glue on the outside flap, and roll them together. (Picture #2) 

Step 8 


• Make a total of 5. 

• Glue together as shown. 

• If you want to add a stem, a pipe cleaner works well. Stick it in after the 3rd petal.
